Miss Kim Gades
Hello, and welcome to 4TH grade!
My name is Kim Gades, and I am a 4th Grade teacher at Minneota Elementary. I started teaching in Minneota in the 2012-2013 school year. I have taught 1st, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades in my time here. I am excited about returning to 4th grade reading and social studies this year! I have also served as a speech coach here in Minneota since 2012 for grades 6-12.
I am originally from Adrian, MN. I attended Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall and obtained degrees in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. Before obtaining a job in Minneota, I worked in several districts in southwestern Minnesota as a substitute and spent a year in Hancock, MN, teaching preschool and kindergarten.
In the summer, I enjoy teaching swimming lessons at the Minneota Pool.
A few of my favorites are:
Candy: Sour Gummy Worms & Kit Kats
Drink: Twisted Elixir Bubbl'r
Book as a 4th Grader: Ella Enchanged
Smell: Pumpkin Cupcake from Bath & Body Works
TV Show: The Office
Hobbies: watching movies, swimming, reading, and going to craft shows
I look forward to this coming year and teaching 4th grade!
